Working Group

As ESG grows increasingly important to businesses, leading companies are rethinking their sustainability talent strategies

As ESG grows increasingly important to businesses, leading companies are rethinking their sustainability talent strategies. When hiring sustainability experts to work in different functions, organisations must create the right job profiles, develop relationships with qualified universities, and retain staff with sought-aft skills. With demand for such talent often exceeding supply, businesses find themselves competing with one another for the best candidates.

To support companies in their sustainability talent strategies, this Sustainability Leaders working group will explore the following issues through a series of activities:

  • Job profiles and skill sets that companies are recruiting for to support their sustainability efforts.
  • Where and how companies are recruiting sustainability talent.
  • Methods of retaining sustainability talent and expertise.
